Take a visual tour through our beautiful new restaurant. As you can see, the two-level, 175-seat space is flooded with natural light, thanks to almost 100 feet of windows throughout the restaurant.
Avtar Walia, owner of Tamarind in the Flatiron section of Manhattan opened his newest restaurant Tamarind Tribeca at 99 Hudson Street at Franklin Street. Set in a handsome corner art deco building, the modern 11,000 square foot venue seats 175 people on two levels, the main dining room and windowed bar and cocktail lounge on the first floor and a 1,500 square foot mezzanine.
Mr. Walia has assembled a highly skilled team of chefs representing many of India's varied regions to produce new dishes and classic fare. Anchoring the dining room at the restaurant site is a tandoor kitchen with glass walls and a ceiling high tall black metal roof.
Intimate booths with banquette seating are divided by sheer curtains and located under the mezzanine. A floating cantilevered stair leads up to the mezzanine which is used for dining, private parties and special events.
Dramatic ceiling-high windows face Hudson and Franklin Streets. L-shaped banquettes provide seating in low booths adjacent to many of the restaurant's wndows.
Here is a link to a recent PIX 11 show "Taste Makers" filmed at Tamarind Tribeca with three time Emmy Award winner and television anchor Sukanya Krishnan and Lisa Mateo.
Come in and visit the new Lotus Room. It celebrates India's national flower, prized for its serene, natural beauty and colorful, fragrant flowers. Tamarind's award-winning chef team have created a menu featuring dishes prepared with lotus. Lunch and tea is served daily from11:30 AM until 5 PM.
A wide range of materials and shapes are used to create imaginative and original lighting throughout. Both ceiling mounted and wall displayed, these designs are used to define each of the areas at Tamarind Tribeca.
Limestone-clad columns reach the almost 18-foot ceilings. Below, polished, sustainable teak wood and streaked marble cover the floors.
Upholstered dining chairs and banquettes are covered in smooth and textured fabrics, in elegant shades of bronze, copper, beige, gray and olive green.
The architect and designer of Tamarind and Tamarind Tribeca is Wid Chapman, who heads his own firm in New York City.
